Does anyone know what racket he is using? It is a paint job of a 300g Hot Melt I think.

So does anyone know if it is a paintjob of the 300g or which racket it actually is?

Any Ideas?

Liam, this is the old Dunlop Revelation Tour Pro MP. The original frame is burgundy. There's an old TW link still floating out there with a pic, specs and even a review of it. Dunlop at one point had so many variations on the word Revelation out it's tough to keep straight. Hopefully someone here will post that can recall for sure the exact name. Definitely not the 300G, or the 200G he supposedly played with while winning the Australian. Funny to watch that final, 2 guys with frames that didn't look the same at all, even though they were painted identically.

Yup, that's it. I had my hands on one a couple years ago in a sports shop in Paris where they had a bunch of discontinued Dunlop sticks. Good pickup weight and balance. It's maybe 22 mm beam and the isis antishock system was so good, dunlop brought it back. The old tw review loved it, the only thing they wanted to change was the funky grip, which has ridges on it. You can see in that photo they're there. Looks like the thing is in good shape too. Better hope Johansson doesn't get a whiff of that link, he may be running out --

Thanks for that. I might have a go for it even though I generally like thin beam rackets.

Thanks again for your help!

Wow, I bet that's a nice frame.

It's about as close as I am going to get to a POG longbody though :(

I let the dunlop go, but I will keep an eye on that as it will post worldwide.

Thanks Matt!!

No problem Liam. Just be careful. I am getting a little skeptical about this auction sites after the scam that has been pulled on perfmode.

I wouldn't worry so much about this seller, he has 100% positive feedback (40) and has alot of items for sale. But still use caution and contact the seller before buying, ask for verification, an address and a phone number so you can track him if he trys to scam you
